One of the most difficult yet important changes I've made getting sober, with the most life altering effects, has been changing who I associate with. Surrounding yourself with positive, like minded people and letting go of relationships that aren't productive can open up a whole new world. Big ups to all the positive peeps that have helped me go from the streets to growing organic eats. #modernnaturalfarming #urbanfarming #recoveryhappens #cleanandsober #sobriety . . . #seasonextension #natural #organic #microbes #ferment #probiotic #probioticgrown #livingsoil #garden #notill #sustainableagriculture #polyculture #permaculture #compost #wormgrown #growsomethinggreen #marketgarden #farmersmarket #cle #eatlocal #eatlocalfood   #clegram #lorain #supportyourlocalurbanfarmer

It’s #tbt and we have so many options! How about these ‘San Andreas’ beauties harvested on Oct. 24 this year. 😍 ‘San Andreas’ was our second highest yielding cultivar this year, producing an average of 7,485 lbs/acre under low tunnels and 5,837 lbs/acre on open beds (technically these yields aren’t statistically different, even though the average yield is greater under low tunnels). Overall, our strawberry yields were lower In 2018 than 2017, maybe all the 🌧. If you’re planning to grow day-neutrals next year, nurseries sell out quick, so we recommend getting your order in ASAP if you haven’t already!

Tunnel greens soaking in the sun after the frost blanket has been pulled out of the way. This customer has set up full length cables that run from end to end that the frost blanket rests on...you can kind of see the blanket bunched up at the bottom of the picture. There are pros and cons to every frost blanket setup, but one benefit of this type of layout would be the frost blanket isn't laying in between the rows getting stepped on and beat up over time...maybe this helps keep the blankets usable a year or two longer #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #urbanagriculture #frostblanket #urbanfarming #urbanag #michiganfarm #ohiofarm #virginiafarm #iowafarm #indianafarm #nrcs #oeffa #nmsfc #acresusa #permaculture #seasonextension #farmcapacity #farmproductivity #profitablefarming #selfsufficiency #survivalist #microfarm #microfarming #smallfarm #smallfarming #tunnelvisionhoops

One of our neighbors commented on the tiny white specks she saw on our unwashed spinach leaves. We explained to her they are tiny hairs (called trichomes) on the surface of the leaves and that they don’t affect the flavor or texture. A rare if not unlikely feature on supermarket spinach. The ultimate sign of freshness! このほうれん草についている白い点々は何だと思います?ほうれん草の毛なのです〜!でも寒い時しか現れないし、洗うとなくなる。採れたての新鮮なほうれん草にしか見れないよ✌︎ #spinach #trichomes #seasonextension #sparkle #ほうれん草

Greenhouses = covered! Just got done slappin' plastic up on this baby. Swipe left for a pic of one hoop house right before the actual covering. We worked 'til dark and plastic still needs some tightening, adjusting, tweaking, and solarizing, but stay tuned for pics soon of the finished product in daylight. Two new hoop houses means lots of early veg this upcoming spring, and lots more veg next winter 😄❄️🔥🌱🍅👍 #greenhouse #hoophouse #seasonextension #earlyspringveggies #winterveggies #greenhouseconstruction

Believe it or not, there’s still quite a bit of growing going on underneath the snow. Definitely slowing down as the days get shorter and we approach the solstice, but not dormant quite yet! Just dropped off a large donation of #HFFF and @granorfarm veggies with the FCG Community Food Network in Benton Heights. Hoping to do one or two more before the year ends! #decembergarden #seasonextension #fooddonation #nevertoolatetodonate #nevertoolatetogarden #HFFF #harborcountry #swmichigan #puremichigan #eatlocal #organicgardening #healthyliving

Winter time on the farm is for growth -- of infrastructure that is! We are so excited to see the frame of our new high tunnel up at the seed farm. 🎉 This tunnel will help create a more controlled environment for our seed crops and our farm crew can't wait to get growing in there. Fingers crossed for calm winds and clear weather later this week when we hope to "skin" our tunnel, aka put the plastic on. 📷 Photo cred goes to Farmer Steven. . . . #organicseedfarm #farmersteven #seasonextension #seedcrops #organicseed #winterfarming #winteronthefarm #hightunnel #organicfarm #smallfarms #hudsonvalley

More big doors, and more 8 mm Polycarbonate end-wall. It's been interesting to see the number of customers this year that opted for 8 mm twin wall Polycarbonate for their ends. Probably has as much to do with how long it lasts, as it does with its R-value. This tunnel also has a double layer inflated poly top cover and a heater, which goes a long way to protect this structure from snow build up. Even without the heater the double layer inflation setup helps a great deal by putting outward pressure on the plastic, which helps gradually push the snow off the tunnel...side note: This picture was taken when it was warm out...which it is not right now...Stay warm out there #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #greenhouseacademy #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #urbanag #michiganfarm #ohiofarm #virginiafarm #iowafarm #indianafarm #nrcs #oeffa #nmsfc #acresusa #permaculture #seasonextension #farmcapacity #farmproductivity #profitablefarming #selfsufficiency #survivalist #microfarm #microfarming #smallfarm #smallfarming #tunnelvisionhoops

Yesterday was warm and sunny enough to tempt me outside. I was happy (and surprised) to see that my sweet pea seedlings are doing just fine! They are tucked up against the house and covered with frost cloth. I’m on track for early sweet pea flowers if they make it through the next couple of months! 👏🤞 . . . . . . #sweetpea #sweetpeas #lathyrus #lathyrusodoratus #seedlings #seedling #babyplanys #wintergarden #wintergardening #seasonextension #agribon #gardenchat #gardentip #coldweathergardening #growyourown #getgrowing #mygarden #gardening

We are always trying to improve our growing techniques at the farm. If this year taught us anything it’s that we need more high tunnels not only for season extension, but to keep out all the rain. We will be building a few new high tunnels in the next two weeks so we will be able to triple our vegetable growing production!

I’ve got some numbers for y’all.. We’ve been sweeping snow off the caterpillar tunnels @rootsandfruitsmarket for the past 18 hours. 13 inches have accumulated since last night, and it continues to fall. 3 of 4 tunnels remain standing. Oh! ..and I turned 31 today! —— Thank you to to @whaleybrewer for sticking it out with me, and @sunsetsandminuets & @foreverisasleep for fun times while helping the cause. —— Also, thinking about those farmers out there who had greenhouses and tunnels collapse. Y’all are resilient as the strong plants you grow! Sending love and good vibes! —— #thethingswedoforvegetables

I found this picture while looking through old photos. We custom fabricated this to fit an existing structure for a farm that was also getting a new TVH 30x96 tunnel...and while we don't currently sell this structure addition as a DIY Kit or anything like that I thought it might be worth sharing for anyone out there brainstorming their own ways to harden plants. This hardening house can take overflow trays from the greenhouse as they approach being ready to transplant out into the field (the side of the adjacent greenhouse can roll-up inside the hardening house and trays can be handed directly into the hardening house). The entire cover of the hardening house rolls all the way up and all the way down, and in practice, the side would be rolled up and left there for more and more time each day. This would allow direct sunlight to more gradually hit the plants so they aren't as shocked when they are transplanted out into the field #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #urbanagriculture #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #urbanag #michiganfarm #ohiofarm #virginiafarm #iowafarm #indianafarm #nrcs #oeffa #nmsfc #acresusa #permaculture #seasonextension #farmcapacity #farmproductivity #profitablefarming #selfsufficiency #survivalist #microfarm #microfarming #smallfarm #smallfarming #tunnelvisionhoops

I 🧡Turmeric!! . I think it’s funny how everyone says Turmeric differently, many folks pronounce it like the first R is silent. I pronounce it with the first R. I’ve had many folks ask me why I say it like that, I explain, and I’ve had many people react telling me they didn’t ever notice the first R. . Anyway turmeric is an excellent anti-inflammatory, I often find myself eating it fresh like a carrot 🥕

Winter radish #microgreens are ready to harvest! ❄️🌱 This entire bed was seeded November 1st, so it took over a month to fill in. In peak growing season, this growth would have only taken 7 days! Winter growing is slow but steady.

Done! -ish. In a process that has now spanned over 2 months, we finally got our garlic planted and the last of our tunnels moved for the year. We were behind the ball entirely this fall on annual vegetable stuff, but the forgiveness of movable tunnels allowed us to plant inside and then move to our next rotation. We’re also questioning the efficacy of the movable tunnels, and season extension in general as we head into our second decade of perennial farming but for the early winter of this year, that was a saving grace. in general, the goal is to get garlic interplanted in the orchard, but now for now we’ve been using the high-value rotational spaces are movable titles. Looking forward to 2019 in terms of room imagining our integrated farm vision

It may be December but it still looks like summer in here, where we’re experimenting with some season extension! Zinnias are blooming, squash is growing, and sunflowers are starting to open in our small 6’x6’ greenhouse. It’s small size allows it to heat up fast and efficiently, providing enough warmth and sunshine for these plants to continue growing. Excited to see what we’ll be able to get out of here during the winter! 😍 #seasonextension #greenhouse #zinnia #sunflower #botanicalinterests #fallfarm #farmlife #raleighnc #localflowers

Did y’all know that today is World Soil Day?! Yeah, me neither. Dirt! I love this stuff. It’s our greatest resource as farmers. We must conserve and protect it. Pictured behind me is Jerry. He is one of two high tunnels that we (mostly Ern) have just finished building to replace our mega tunnel that was destroyed by high winds in July. Jerry’s counterpart is Ben. The two are aptly named for the calories from whence Ern received the energy to build them. mmm, ice cream Yay for soil conservation!

All set for another chilly night! Our high tunnels are not heated, so on cold nights we add a couple layers of row cover for insulation. We uncover everything during the day so the plants can soak up as much sunshine as possible.

I am overwintering my row of silver drop eucalyptus. I am in zone 7. I cut the plants back to 6” tall. I had them covered with Agribon AG19 row cover when temperatures went below freezing in November. They actually started to grow again. Our weather is getting ready to become really cold with below average temperatures. I am now adding Agribon AG30 for overwintering and frost protection. I also purchased silver drop eucalyptus seeds from @johnnys_seeds I will be starting those seeds in January and planting them outside in March under row covers. I will be prepared in case this row does not make it through the winter. #eucalyptus #overwintering #frostprotection #seasonextension #winteriscoming #winter #flower #gardening #inmygardentoday #cutflowergarden #growflowers #growyourownflowers #buylocal #flowerfarmer #flowerfarming #ncflowers #ncgardening #scentedfoliage #grownfromseed
